lyrics

I ripped out the pages
Of all the love letters
That I told you
that I wrote you

I scattered them over
The rooftops of cities
Where I told you
that I loved you

And I've been thinking
More often than I would like
To admit
To your friends,
To your soul
Perhaps there has been something wrong
This whole time

And now there's a place in my chest
Where your heart used to rest
Sleeping right next to mine
And perhaps I left
My rib cage far too open and
It decided it would fly away
From me
In any case I am so sorely
Sorry

I'll be sitting here
Sitting pretty
'Till you come around
I'll be sitting here
Sitting pretty
'Till you come around
Looking for me
Again
Looking for me

You were always
Stubborn
The way that your
Eyes rolled back
Into your head
When I spoke

But honey,
You needed me
Wrapped in your arms
Each morning
Whenever
You woke

And I've been thinking
More often than I would like
To admit
To your friends,
To your soul
Perhaps there has been something wrong
This whole time

And now I am left with the keys
In my hands
And my fingertips are growing black
go tell her you love her
You idiot, hold her
And kiss her till you've got her back

I'll be sitting here
Sitting pretty
'Till you come around
Looking for me
I'll be sitting here
Sitting pretty
'Till you come around
Looking for me
Again
